I had a suspicious mole removed and the biopsy came back diagnosing stage 1b with a Breslow thickness of 1mm.

Melanoma stage b. The melanoma is between 2 and 4 mm thick and is not ulcerated. Saw consultant week ago who says I need to have another wide excision and offered me the option of lymph node biopsy. The risk profile and extent of melanoma spread is described as staging.

They make it sound as though anything above 1 is a death sentence eventually. I was sent for a PET scan and CT scan of my chest. Each stage is based on characteristics such as tumour thickness ulceration and the involvement of lymph nodes or organs.

The last stage is called stage 4. Melanoma and Melanoma In-Situ Diagnosis after Excision of Atypical Intraepidermal Melanocytic Proliferation Retrospective 1127 biopsies reported as AIMP subsequently excised one academic institution Melanoma in-situ stage 1A was diagnosed after excision in 82 921127 of. Treatment for these recurrences is generally the same as for stage IV melanoma see above.

The stage provides a common way of describing the cancer so doctors can work together to create the best treatment plan and understand a patients prognosis. Your lymph nodes may or may not be swollen in stage 3. Doctors divide stage III into four detailed categories A B C and D based on things like size and how far its spread.

Stage 0 zero and stages I through IV 1 through 4. This stage of melanoma. This is a complicated stage with many possible scenariosOverall five-year survival for this stage is 30 percent to 59 percent.

This refers to melanoma in situ which means melanoma cells are found only in the outer layer of skin or epidermis. There n are statistics available on the likelihood of melanoma recurrence for each stage of melanoma. The earliest stage melanomas are stage 0 melanoma in situ and then range from stages I 1 through IV 4.

Survival rates decrease with later stages of melanoma. Melanoma that comes back in the brain can be hard to treat. Stage II melanoma is divided into three subgroups.

What is the deal with the current staging and prognosis for stage 1b melanoma. The stages of melanoma include. Stage IV This means the cancer has spread to your lungs brain bones.

The first sentinel node was removed and it had 6mm of melanoma in it. A mitosis of greater than 1 separates it from stage 1a but I read that people have a mitosis of 23456 and they bunch it all into one. It appears to be localised in the skin.

The first stage is called stage 0 or melanoma in situ. It appears to be localised in the skin. T2a N0 M0 Melanoma is between 10 and 20 mm thick without ulceration.

Stage 2B means one of the following. The melanoma tumor is more than 20 millimeters and less than 40 millimeters thick with broken skin. Is 2 mitosis better than 6.

A higher number such as stage IV means cancer has spread more. In June I had surgery- wide excision to remove the melanoma and a sentinel node biopsy. Stage I melanomas can be split into stage 1A and stage 1B.

A diagnosis of stage 1B melanoma means it has been caught early and most patients dont have further recurrence of their melanoma oce treated. Hh5678 over 2 years ago. A melanoma with a thickness between 08mm to 2 mm with no ulceration.

A stage 1B melanoma can be categorised as either. The melanoma tumor is more than 10 millimeter and less than 20 millimeters thick up to the size of a new crayon point with ulceration broken skin or more than 20 and less than 40 millimeters without broken skin. The melanoma is between 2 and 4 mm thick and the outermost layer of skin covering the tumour looks broken under the microscope it is ulcerated the melanoma is thicker than 4 mm and is not ulcerated.

Melanomas that recur on an arm or leg may be treated with isolated limb perfusioninfusion chemotherapy. Stage 3A is the least serious while stage 3C. Some stages are split further using capital letters A B etc.

A melanoma with a thickness greater than 4 mm has a high risk of spreading. Stage 3 melanoma is broken into substages a b c and d depending on the tumors size whether it is ulcerated and how many lymph nodes or tissues it has spread to. There are five stages of melanoma.

Once diagnosed the stage of melanoma then guides the treatment approach. My melanoma then became 3b. Doctors divide stage 3 melanoma into three categories.

Most often the melanoma will come back in the lungs bones liver or brain. In stage IIB the tumor is more than 2 mm but not more than 4 mm thick with ulceration or more than 4 mm thick without ulceration. The pathology report came back said it was stage 2b.

In stage IIC the tumor is more than 4 mm thick with ulceration. T2b or T3a N0 M0 Melanoma is between 10 mm and 20 mm in thickness with ulceration or it. A melanoma with a thickness less than 08mm with ulceration.

As a rule the lower the number the less the cancer has spread. New to the group and really interesting reading your discussions. The tumor has spread to skin thats near the melanoma satellite metastasis or to nearby lymph channels in transit metastasis but the lymph nodes themselves do not contain melanoma.
